A new year and a new Era has started! The Big Red Button is dead! The iconic Savox C-C400 Big Red PTT button is no longer available as the product has come to its end of life in 2017. The great heritage of the C-C400 is carried forward by the improved versions C-C440 and PTT-1 .
In this blog we will go through the three main things you need to consider when getting ready for these new requirements. These are:
Reliable radio communication during fire operations is vital to ensuring the safety of rescue personnel and enables the work of firefighting to be more effective; therefore helping to save lives and property.
Icom Connectivity for XG C-C1 Dual RSM/PTT
XG C-C1 connectivity to Icom multipin iDAS F series radios - F3261D, F4261D, F3306D, F4306D.
For mission critical personnel in fire and rescue industries, you can depend on Savox XG C-C1 to provide you with high-quality audio, great noise reduction and programmable radio features, coupled with a range of headsets to suit your job.
Submersed for 6 hours and High Temperature Tested at 520F for 5 minutes
Not only did we subject the the XG C-C1 to high temperature testing of 520F for over 5 minutes, but we also submersed the XG C-C1 in one foot of water for 6 hours and successfully transmitted underwater to the Delsar search and rescue probe.
These tests show that the XG C-C1* is one of the most robust fire speaker microphones in the market AND the only dual mode RSM/PTT radio accessory tested to exceed future industry requirements.
New Hydrophobic Design - The newly redesigned microphone aperture minimizes surface tension so water is repelled from the mic aperture.
Redesigned Headset Interface - A new high tolerance headset socket as well as high temperature silicon plugs. The 3.5mm receive audio is also enhanced.
- 2W speaker output
- Upgraded circuit board
- Improved audio output
- New silicone plugs for higher temperatures
Rigorous testing and manufacturing processes by Savox ensure that in fire and emergency conditions you’ll still have communications with your team in the most extreme conditions. We keep our promise to you that You’re Never Alone.
*Rated Ingress Protection of IP67 and MIL-STD-810G, procedure 1 and recommended operational temperatures from-40C to +85°C
We recently attended FDIC in Indianapolis and noticed there was some chatter from one of our "friends" about heat testing a certain radio accessory up to 500F degrees. So we decided to jump into the conversation and test our own Savox C-C1.
|The Savox C-C1 remote speaker microphone (RSM) was heat-tested to 520F degrees (271) for 5 minutes and guess what happened?|
NOTHING. It still works.
